The Biggest/ Longest/ Heaviest!
Surely I’m not the only one who was totally obsessed with the Guinness Book of World Records when I was a kid. Remember the World’s Fattest Man, Fat Albert? Or the guy with the longest fingernails? Well, here’s your chance to witness record-making absurdity.
Oct. 26, noon
